Convergence at AirBNB

I don't use AirBNB. But if I did, I would stop.
This Saturday, Virginia’s Lee Park is slated to be the meeting place of the Unite The Right rally, a much-publicized gathering of far-right personalities and their sycophants. With less than a week to go, Airbnb has taken active measures to delete the accounts of some members the company believes to be staying in Charlottesville for the rally... According to screenshots shared on Twitter, the users have apparently been banned for violating Airbnb’s Terms of Service.
"Violating Terms of Service" is SJW speak for banning badthinkers and thought criminals. And their list of badthinkers and thought criminals is growing every single day.

Meanwhile, at Google, you can expect to discuss diversity, and nothing but diversity, should you happen to interview there. The middle managers want to make sure they hire nothing but SJWs. At this rate, Google's eventual crash-and-burn promises to rival Yahoo's.

Thomas Bushnell...has to go back.

Blogger Tom Terrific August 07, 2017 4:26 AM  

This is clearly a violation of the Law. AirBnB is a Public Accommodation [hotel] (so are Twitter and Facebook, for that matter) and they do not have the right to refuse service to the public on the basis of "a person's national origin, race, color, religion, disability, sex, and familial status. Laws prohibiting national origin discrimination make it illegal to discriminate because of a person's birthplace, ancestry, CULTURE or language. This means people cannot be denied accommodation because they or their family participate in CERTAIN CUSTOMS associated with a NATIONAL ORIGIN GROUP (like Republicans, Libertarians, Nationalists), etc."

Also, the term "religion" as used herein refers to ANY set of beliefs a person follows. The term used use to be Creed: "Any system or codification of belief or of opinion." - Dictionary.com

I just hope someone, any one of these people denied service from AirBnB files a lawsuit. They WILL win.

Air BNB went full SJW some time back

You commit to treat everyone–regardless of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age–with respect, and without judgment or bias.

— Airbnb’s new SJW diktat

We’ll be implementing a new policy called Open Doors. Starting October 1st, if a Guest anywhere in the world feels like they have been discriminated against in violation of our policy – in trying to book a listing, having a booking canceled, or in any other interaction with a host – we will find that Guest a similar place to stay if one is available on Airbnb, or if not, we will find them an alternative accommodation elsewhere.

— Brian Chesky, Airbnb CEO and co-founder


Just a feeling is enough to trigger. Avoid AirBNB like the plague.

Airbnb is awful. Shortly after getting that email I decided to quit them. They also sent a lovely letter about the refugees soon after the GEs travel ban. And they're trying to get hosts to enable instant book meaning you can't review the guest before booking. Horrible company.

SouthRon - Looks like Google has changed beyond recognition from 13-15 years ago, when it was still a fun, irreverent startup that boasted of only hiring certified geniuses and the spergiest of lords.

Scale tends to lower standards because big companies have lots more space for useless people to hide in, but Google's rapid metamorphosis into full-blown poly-tranny-bluehair-pedo-AIDS is still remarkable.

I'm wondering if the culture of Silicon Valley is now inherently toxic to long term business growth. Sure, it's still full of clever nerds and investor capital, but if you're one of the 10% of startups that succeeds you'll start to accrete unproductive freaks and losers till your company resembles some sort of genderfluid circus and then ossifies and dies.

The problem is timing especially with a company like google. Investment banks investing in tech firms do not care at all about current profits. When google starts showing losses all they have to do is spin a yarn about all the new potential technology they are working on that is right around the corner. It is going to take awhile for investment firms to finally stop believing them and timing that is going to be hard.

It's been all down hill from that point. The SJWs at AirBnB think they can survive any backlash because they are the industry "brand name".

The biggest social media companies are a goldmine of data on billions of people. Some of those companies got their seed funding from a fedgov source. The fedgov will never let them go under if they can help it.

Unless there's a massive change in management, which I don't foresee, when the business history books are written it'll be ranked up there with the Arthur Andersen/Enron self destruction. Unfortunately, it will only be the headline example. It will be long list.

Religion and race, yes. Politics? It can be, but it's not a federal law. It varies by state and municipality.

There's only one profit center at Google: Advertising.

> Can Google's new policy of discrimination be held up in a court of law?

That's a very good question. First, it's not Google's official policy (yet). Second, it depends on the applicable law in their area (most likely California). Third, since it's not their official policy you'd have to show a pattern of discrimination indicating that it was either tolerated or encouraged by management.

But if that's the route they go, it's only a matter of time till an enterprising lawyer decides the money is worth it.

Anonymous krymneth August 07, 2017 9:32 AM  

Interesting route for lawfare, now that I think about it. If "a commitment to diversity" is clearly a no-foolin dog whistle for being a Democrat, and could be found illegal during a job interview, then what would that imply about all the other "dedicated to diversity" training and such? It is illegal to require political affiliation for employment. If "diversity" is clearly not simply "a universally agreed good thing" but instead a particular belief of a particular party, mandatory training and such is probably illegal.

When this guy gets fired, I hope he sues.

I hope that 45 minute interview is for people wanting to be sellers, not people just wanting a freaking room for the night. What pretentious crap.

This is a good example of why the Left prefers big business over small. If there are only a handful of hotels and motels and convention centers in town, and they're all licensed by some governing authority, it's much easier for that authority to twist their elbows and keep them from inviting badthinker groups to hold events there. If property owners are doing their own thing outside that control structure, it's much harder.

The problem is, the industry is still really young and there are virtually no barriers to entry for any more freedom focused competition.

Exactly. The ideal system is one where all businesses are strictly regulated so that the state can ensure everything is done by the book and mavericks are unable to upset the apple cart. I wonder if there's a name for that kind of system. Something that evokes imagery of straightness and uprightness, perhaps.

Two college kids could set up a competitor on AWS in about 15 minutes.

Yes, many of these tech companies are at heart a pretty basic web site concept (made more complex as they scale up in size) that dominated because it was the first to do something or it did something a bit better than anyone else. But now that they've grown, they no longer have the advantage of being lean and responsive, so they have to bank on their market domination and government connections to protect them from the next hungry pack of developers who want to replicate what they themselves did yesterday.

"Experience with diversity?" Perhaps Mr. Bushnell is unaware that experience with (unfiltered-- i.e. not just talented tenth) diversity tends to give people a realistic view of what "vibrant" really means?

You can stop ghost-dancing any decade now. The interpretation of 'Muh constitushun' is determined solely by those who wear the black robes, who are all of the same SJW-hivemind (those robes need a makeover into a rainbow pattern, or perhaps hot-pink). Under extant rulings hetero-normal whites - especially those who have expressed any kind of badthink - are not subject to any of the anti-discrimination benefits of the 1964 civil rights act or any of its many legal medusa-heads as they are the designated oppressors of the precious ones. As long as a "public accomodation" is owned by either a precious one (in Californistan, whites are actually a minority but they are not defined in law as one) or by the (((super-intelligent fake-whites))) such rules do not apply - being precious or the priestly-protectors of the precious. "Hate-crimes" are applied in much the same way. Conservatives are there to ensure that no changes are made to the application of such laws, less their (((priest-paymasters))) become displeased and they disobey Judeo-Christ.

This kind of statement is made all the time. It is true in a long-term sense only. The thing you are missing is that Google, FB, et al were all built up to their size by the infusion of fake-money by the owners of the counterfeiting monopoly, followed by their fellow Wall Street criminals throwing tons of other people's money at them to inflate values exponentially beyond what they are really worth. Once huge, they become yet another entity who is too big to jail and serves as a conduit to pay off politicians. The whole racket continues because idiots continue to borrow fake-money and to otherwise buy into a system designed to strip-mine them of everything. So, as long as the connected criminals who control pension funds, mutual funds, etc. continue to throw OPM at Twitter, Google, FB, AirBB, etc. - it does not matter if they lose money, especially since much of the actual loss can be hidden anyway.

They almost wrecked Ted Turner before it was over.

Remember the endless supply of AOL discs that were slipped into every possible place?

What this guy is suggesting is illegal in every state in the USA. I don't know what country he lives in, but if he lives in the USA, Google needs to fire him before the lawsuits come.

Yeah, but if he's "diverse" in any way, there's a lawsuit, too. Damned if you do....

AirBnB is on DANGEROUS ground. Big cities and powerful lobbies already don't like them because of their blatant skirting of the rules. This is just the thing that a lot of cities would cooperate with to get the ball rolling against them.

Longer than most of us realize. d.c. sunsets is a regular here who seems to have a grasp of the situation better than most. As I mentioned above, the sheer volume of fake-money, followed by infusion of other people's real-money under the the criminals running the cartel laughably referred to as the "free-market" insulate such places from much of the destruction for a long time. But there's another - possibly even more important - factor which is very difficult to quantify. d.c. sunsets likes to explain it in terms of public mood or optimistic goodfeelz. How long will it take before all the dumbasses who continually buy into the system wake up to the fact they're being systematically strip-mined by a completely rigged extraction racket?? When the day comes that a critical mass wakes up to the full hideous reality of what's been done to them, the goodfeelz mood will evaporate very fast.

He is openly gay, and (at least when I worked with him) enjoyed making his straight co-workers uncomfortable with salacious references and jokes. He is actually a really good programmer, assuming your startup wants to have a NoSQL database written from scratch in Chicken Scheme.

"... too big to jail ..." is exactly right. If you can get to a certain size you are safe. Otherwise, you can get stepped on.

Even if AirBnB wasn't converged , its business model is destructive to communities and to the economy

The core idea, you can rent you house out for a few days and make a few bucks has already morphed into a unregulated drug and sex orgy hotel business plopped right down in residential neighborhoods

The last thing people need is a bunch a party trash in the midst of an otherwise quiet upscale suburb

You can stop ghost-dancing any decade now. The interpretation of 'Muh constitushun' is determined solely by those who wear the black robes, who are all of the same SJW-hivemind (those robes need a makeover into a rainbow pattern, or perhaps hot-pink). Under extant rulings hetero-normal whites - especially those who have expressed any kind of badthink - are not subject to any of the anti-discrimination benefits of the 1964 civil rights act or any of its many legal medusa-heads as they are the designated oppressors of the precious ones. As long as a "public accomodation" is owned by either a precious one (in Californistan, whites are actually a minority but they are not defined in law as one) or by the (((super-intelligent fake-whites))) such rules do not apply - being precious or the priestly-protectors of the precious. "Hate-crimes" are applied in much the same way. Conservatives are there to ensure that no changes are made to the application of such laws, less their (((priest-paymasters))) become displeased and they disobey Judeo-Christ.


Ghost dancing. heh.

Very true.

We are entering a power is truth phase in our history which is terrible for the old, sick and those who crave peace, stability and wealth.

Its not as bad for reformers though and for national restoration or depending on how things go those who wouldn't mind a retirement plan in the form of a little gas station fort with some severed head decorations

Nobody likes hypocrisy. The Leftist Liberals seem to hate it the most and yet practice it the most. Somehow it is wrong to refuse to bake a wedding cake for homosexuals, it is wrong to refuse to hire convicted felons, it is wrong to discriminate in hiring, it is wrong to boycott Leftist-led corporations who engage in virtue signaling, it is wrong to disagree with the policies of a Half-Negro president, it is wrong to assume girls are girls and boys are boys....but somehow it is not wrong to deny American citizens the equal rights enjoyed by others. To the Leftists, people cannot be free to vote their own conscience, they cannot hold political opinions the Leftists find annoying or contrary, they have no right to assembly and free speech, unless it includes burning police cars or waving foreign flags.

THAT boys and girls, is why open conflict in this country is inevitable and unavoidable....no matter what happens to Donald Trump.

What was the public mood on December 6th, 1941 and how was it different on December 8th, 1941?

What was the public mood on September 10th, 2001 and how was it different on September 12th, 2001?

The public mood can change dramatically in a day, before lunch, even before the next edition of the newspaper.

Quick question what would be the best way for someone that was white to AIRBNB stay with leftists, get a refund and get their accounts shut down?

Blogger Roger G2 August 07, 2017 3:04 PM  

I'm sure that no interviewee ever lied, nope, not once, ever!
I'd just walk into a Google interview with a "muh refugees welcome" sign hanging from my neck, point at Mr. Bushnell, and sing "I really really like you!"
Hired on the spot.

Yes, but that rapid a change requires some type of triggering event. Of course, there are events which could act as a trigger every day. They don't, until suddenly the time is just right and one does.

Plant evidence of drug use (assuming planting it is even necessary, we are talking leftists here) and notify the cops and AirBNB?

It might also be a response to a hotel group ad saying AirBnB might be renting to terrorists

So they will purge the alt-right, but lets see how many anti-fa are staying at airbnb

Another is Priceline. For the life of me I don't understand how a commodity ticket vendor has such a high valuation

Blogger Owen August 12, 2017 6:55 AM  

I'll try one of those next time. Vrbo and home away are unfortunately not too great for the owners (which is how airbnb got big in the first place) but I would hate to support airbnb again as a guest given their direction.
